Vegas Advice Requested

I thought I would post this here instead of the regional area since there are probably several people who can assist not from the area. Anyhow, my brother is having his bachelor party over three days in Vegas. He already requested we spend one evening at Taos. Any advice where else to go or do?

Some background:
I am fairly familiar with the strip, having been several times but not in the last two years.
It is a group of about nine so it should be fairly close to the strip to make transportation and coordination easy.
They are staying at Caesars, I believe.
We are all over 30.
For my part, and his I believe, strippers and such are old.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

I would stay in Taos if I were you! You could probably still find some lines, but you would have to hike to earn those turns If not, great area for a hike.

^ I think the OP is talking about the Tao restaurant and nightclub at the Venitian...not the town in New Mexico.

I would check out the Nine Steakhouse in the Palms, or the Capital Grille. The Capital is one of my favorite steakhouses.

LOL.

If I were you, and with a group of 9 doods, I would get acquainted with a hotel host. Call in advance, pay a premium, and have him service you guys to restaraunts, clubs..etc..

Yes, Tao, not Taos. My mistake. I was confused by the first reply. Not sure if it were some kind of local Vegas slang. Come to think of it, I still am confused with the reference to lines.

either that, buy bottle service or find girls in line to go in the clubs with you.

they are not going to let a group of 9 guys just stroll inside the club. they'll probably walk the line (if it's busy) and boot you out of line.

i'd personally do bottle service. groups of all guys have to buy 1 extra bottle than the standard service.

I threw a bachelor party weekend for a friend in Vegas.

We mostly played it by ear.

If you can afford it, get some help from a hotel employee, as mentioned above, for some special attention and club passes.

Buy/bring some bottles for the room(s)/suite.

Skip the shows, spend time with your friends.

I vaguely recall going to bed at 6A Sun morning. Long, fun weekend. Enjoy!

Just came back from vegas last week. It was an awesome time. If your planning on going clubbing try to go with a group of girls. Also, I ran into a guy infront of coyate ugly and he told me to say that I'm on Brian Foster's guest list and it got us into Pure and LAX so it might even work for you guys. Del Fresco's steak house is a great restaurant it's near the hard rock hotel.

Craft Steak is the the WORST and most OVERPRICED steak house in town. Delmonico's in the Venetian is by far superior to pretty much anything in town.

How much would you say it would cost per guy to do a Vegas weekend, not including flight and hotel. Just the cost of going out and bottle service and such. I've been to Vegas but not that kind of been to Vegas if you know what I mean. Also how much does a typical bottle service cost?

Most clubs are around 375 for their cheapest bottle.
